Granada Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We’ve been customers of Granada since they were in the tiny space that is now the lobby of the hotel. The food use to be sooooo good.
Unfortunatley, since they’ve grown, the food has been hit and miss. I had veal and it was tough! My guests meal was “just average”.
In terms of service, they seemed under-staffed. Ulysses, our waiter, seemed like he had many jobs. He was bar tending and waiting on us, at the very least. He could have sold us more drinks, as we were celebrating my birthday, but he didn’t. (As you know, you can state in your “open table” reservation you can check that it’s a birthday and we did.) There was not a single mention of our celebration at Granada.
It seems when the management changed a couple years ago, is when things began to slip. There was a women managing for quite some time and she was often visible at the restaurant, greeting customers, making sure everything was as it should be. No ones checking now.
The reason we continue to come back is the ambiance is my favorite!!! I hope someone reads this and makes the need adjustments to bring Granada back to her original quality!!!
Generally a favorite of mine. But, did not enjoy my meal at Saturday brunch. Had the roasted vegetable salad. Vegetables were hard and difficult to cut. The sauce on the bottom was fabulous. But they need to learn how to roast root vegetables. Otherwise good.
We went for brunch. The service was SLOW! We had to ask for refills of water and coffee and then wait. Unfortunately this is the 2nd bad experience with our brunch here. This is sad because we love the location and food. The poor service will keep us from going to breakfast/brunch here ever again unless we are staying at the hotel and eating upstairs.
We ordered an omelet to go when we sat down and ordered our dine in food but it never came. We cashed our tag and they said it would be right up but after another 30 minutes of still waiting we had to leave. We were there almost 2 hours. We asked of a refund of the paid for to go food and the waitress started crying. We said keep the money and left.
Limited menu items to choose from, food was good, but not exceptional. I would try it again, but the music was cutting in and out and several guests complained about it yet it took over half an hour to resolve.
I made a reservation asking for a special table outside, but we were given the closest table to the hostess stand, right next to a group of 4, when there were many other tables that were open and separate from other groups. I should have asked for a better table. Our table was so close that it felt like we were eating with this group of 4 next to us. Not a very special occasion as I had hoped.
The Granada did not disappoint. Have been there for lunch and dinner and enjoyed the food and ambiance so decided to try brunch. Had the Granada Eggs Benedict and they were on cornbread biscuits which were divine. Would highly recommend for a nice brunch as they have music and a very nice outdoor area.
I was surprised how loud it was in the restaurant, considering how much I was paying for the food. The honeycomb cheese plate sounded delicious, but the three cheeses just did not pair well with walnuts and honey and figs provided. My gnocchi was delicious. My husband was disappointed with his steak and scallops-he thought the dishes would be better if they had less going on and more simple-as the many pieces just didn't come together.
Food was great, as was service. Music was SO loud though. We couldn't even have a conversation without repeating ourselves constantly and leaning close to each other. And that's difficult with 6 people! Our server did take our request to lower the music volume to the manager, and we did notice it was a *little* lower after that. But still, I will only sit outside when I come again.
Eigentlich würde ich dem Restaurant die komplette Anzahl Sterne geben. Am Anfang toller Service, das Essen war toll. Nur leider kam es am Schluss bei der Rechnung etwas anders.
Ich bestellte für meinen Sohn Pasta mit Butter und Parmesan. Keiner der Mitarbeiter gab mir den Hinweis, das diese Pasta als Pasta mit Muscheln abgerechnet wird (wie sie in der Karte stehen) dh 27 Dollar. Auf eine Korrektur/ Reklamation ließen sie sich nicht ein. Somit war das simple Pasta-Essen teurer als mein Beef und der Salat zusammen. Ich diskutiere nie über Preise im Restaurant oä , doch dort fühlte ich mich über den Tisch gezogen. Schade.
A little pretentious for my family, for example the tepid tap water in a tall glass. But get past that and the food was amazing. Brussels sprouts appetizer came quickly and was delicious, enough for six people. Dinner was great as well. Expensive. Once a year kind of thing for us.
Granada was lovely. Food was excellent and the service was pleasant and attentive however they had the host serving us so I think they were short staffed. The decor and staff were very well put together. On the level of a LA/SF quality restaurant. The music could be turned down a bit for better conversation, however the volume level might be to mask the volume level of the restaurant. Overall I would come again.
The place is quite nice. The bar looks like a good place to hang out and the patio is quite cool.
Went for brunch. Started with the cheese plate, which took longer than the main course orders of two tables which ordered after us. When we got it, the cheese wedges were tiny and they had ran out of one of the three cheeses so we got two of one and one of another. Good cheese, but seemed a bit stingy.
The chilaquiles and the avocado toast were good. The only complain is that the egg on the chilaquiles was hard. Shouldn't it be over easy or sunny side up?
For dessert, we had the key lime pie which was delicious.
Service was good.
Overall, good but not great.
Loved the funky atmosphere- old brick, industrial chic. Food was fabulous- we had the asparagus salad- I'd go back just for that! Also loved the beef tartare and the special fried chicken. Nice to be able to get 3oz pour of wine so we can try more kinds. Highly recommend.
